Not Iphone friendly

Post by VikingMachine » Sat Aug 23, 2008 9:26 am

I cannot seem to stay logged in when on my Iphone. It just logs me out randomly and I have to log back in. Not a huge deal but kind of a pain in the butt.

Sorry, you are way past me... I just use my phone to talk, don't even text, and I don't answer if I'm driving. :)

I was hoping Geoff would reply here to be honest, sorry you're having trouble. :confused:

Sorry, forgot to come respond. I did some googling on this and didn't find much. More was people talking about the themes not being conducive to the smaller screen, nothing about logout problems. I know the login is tracked by a cookie, so you might check your cookie settings and see if there's anything amiss there or if it's set to ditch them too quickly.

Well, you can probably ditch my other posts. It looks like the cookies thing is a bug and you'll have to go further in to hacking the iPHone to get it to work ... other than that you'll have to wait for apple to fix the bug.

While if I had an iPhone I'd probably do it, I wouldn't tell you to simply because I can't fix the problem if it breaks it.

Here's another article that explains the situation a little better, the bit at the end is likely what will be your problem;
http://www.ben.geek.nz/iphone-google-re ... ookie-fix/
Now here’s the deal kids: some people with pristine, locked iPhones are having this issue. They are completely outta luck and will have to live with this issue until Apple issue a fix. Those of us with ‘open’ hardware on the other hand (thanks to the help of myriad hackers), can diagnose, locate, and resolve our own issues. Just like the Maker’s Bill of Rights says.

Now do you understand why locked-down hardware and systems are bad? Did I just break the DMCA by fixing my iPhone?
Sorry man, looks like you're stuck.

Heh ... sorry bout that. They were posts on how to install a mod called "iRemember" but after reading more it turned out you had to have your iPhone hacked to use the mod ... I didn't want to mislead him into installing something that might mess his system up so I just deleted the posts lol
